Kids Matter names Mike Parham as Chairman of the Board


Kids Matter is proud to announce Mike Parham as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors effective June 15th, the 9th Anniversary of Kids Matter International. Mike has been on the board of KMI since its inception in 2006. Kids Matter is excited for Mike to contribute his business savvy and management skills to this new phase in our organization.

Mike Parham is currently the CEO of Pepco Sales & Marketing, President of Pro Products, and a Managing Member of PRE Real Estate. He also serves on the Advisory Board for the Rusche School of Business at Stephen F. Austin State University and was the past President of the Association of Independent Manufacturers’/Representatives (AIMR), an industry trade association. With Parham’s nearly 35 years of experience running multiple businesses, he will be able to contribute his vision and strategic thinking to Kids Matter. He is looking forward to helping KMI in growing and continuing to make an impact in our local communities for kids. His goals include creating a grassroots relationship with the communities in which Kids Matter serves and expanding its programs.

Though Mike enjoys staying busy with his many business projects, he also enjoys spending his spare time with outdoor activities. Some of these include scuba diving, ATV riding, rockhounding, hiking, and all things fitness. He is a huge MLB and college football and baseball fan and loves travelling all over the world with his family.

Mike and his wife, Kim, currently live in Fort Worth and have four children and one grandson. The Parhams’ support several local charities like Meals on Wheels and Guzman 23 Foundation and both have hearts for helping anyone in need.

Kids Matter is looking forward to this transitional, exciting time for our organization and is positive about the decision to make Mike the new Board Chairman. With 2014 being one of the most successful fundraising years since 2006, Kids Matter is dedicated to making changes, reaching higher, and growing upward to positively impact children in need both nationally and internationally.
